A folkie with an indie rocker’s heart, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (Aly Spaltro) takes a confident leap with her second studio release. After isn't as raw as her debut, but the album does have a similar sense of urgency and abandon. It also boasts some exhilarating arrangements that show her progression from solo multi-instrumentalist to capable bandleader. Her powerful voice, a bright and expressive instrument, rings out across these songs. Swooning and soaring, she delivers dense, metaphorical lyrics laced with images of ribcages, gristle, UFOs, and melted Milk Duds, all adding up to an album that’s arty, accessible, and full of surprises.
